CORNWALL, Ontario – Donations are continuing to trickle in as the United Way of SD&G makes its final campaign push.
Cornwall Electric presented the local charitable organization with a $13,053 cheque towards its $710,000 goal.
“Every year, United Way receives support corporately from Cornwall Electric, as well as its employees, who give generously through payroll deduction,” said Michael Galvin, 2015 Campaign chair. “We are extremely grateful for their ongoing generosity, which will change lives in our community.”
The City of Cornwall is also a proud supporter of the charity. This year, a contribution of $10,901.98 is being made by way of payroll deductions from city employees (including Cornwall police).
That’s in addition to other fundraiser events organized by employees throughout the year, including: a summertime barbecue ($255); dress down Fridays ($468); the sale of old city street banners ($410); book sale ($550); and a donation from CUPE 234 at the Local Government Week event in October.
The United Way of SD&G is halfway to its campaign goal.
Every gift of $25 or more received before Dec. 18 enters a person in a draw for a $3,000 Travel Quest gift certificate, sponsored by Your Credit Union.
